Car needs jumper cables to get started
It could be all coincidence with the mirror, however if it was an electric mirror, could be causing a short, in which I would say to tape the ends of the wires as to stop there being any contact. Now, as for the battery, it may be holding charge, however it may still have a failing cell, preventing it from powering up under the initial starting load. Check the battery with a voltmeter, if its over 12 volts, it is fine. If under, consider replacement. Also I had a similar issue once with a lancer. Turned out it was a coroded core in the earth wire. Id say start with the cheapest fix, try the power and earth wires replacement, check the voltage of the battery, and the problem should be fixed. If nothing appears to be still causing the problem and it persists (the wires will be hard to tell unless you simply replace with new ones), you might need to get your starter reconditioned, might be draining more power than can be supplied. An overhall would fix this, but is pricely.
